Summer Roof Care These may be the lazy, hazy days of summer, but taking steps now to keep your roof in shape will help you better enjoy your home in the cold, wet months that are, sadly, just around the corner. Here’s how to maintain your roof in the summer:
1. In addition to taking the same steps you did in spring, you’ll also want to take time each summer remove algae growth and mold buildup that may have accumulated in the wet spring weather.
2. You may be surprised at how quickly the tree canopy has grown, so inspect the area above your roof to ensure that no large tree limbs hover over it.
- Have climbing roses or other vines snaking up your home’s walls? Keep them away from your roof-line at all times!
